About the property

Former barn two apartments one sleeps 4, downstairs sleeps 5, 3 bathrooms, pool

Previously a barn (fienile in Italian) now turned into two separate apartments. The one on the ground floor sleeps 5 with two bathrooms and a fully furnished kitchen and a terrace overlooking olive trees.

A 10 meter by 5 pool is for your convenience. If you rent the whole house the pool is for your use only.

When we immigrated to Italy now 10 years ago Josjes parents joined us an lived in the downstairs apartment.

In the mean time they passed away and since then we have rented the house. It has not changed much since and they outfitted the kitchen very luxuriously.

The upstairs apartment can be reached via an outside stairway, and is rented separately as well. It sleeps four with a nice bathroom and kitchen. A large terrace,

50m2 is used as the living room in summer.

For a group of 9 or even 10 the house is very suited. But if your party is smaller you may only wish to rent the upstairs or downstairs appartement, we can accommodate you at a largely discounted price. In summer the upstairs apartment is available @ € 750 per week and in the low season the weekly rate is €550 per week.

The larger downstairs apartment with 5 beds and two bathrooms and a spacious living area/kitchen goes for €1.150 in summer and outside the summer months @ €750 per week.

Both apartments have their own entrance and privacy is guaranteed.

Around the pool are free beds and ample space for relaxation and unlimited views.

The house is at the end of a 100m driveway and separated from any public roads, although the nearest village is only 1,5 km away with bakery, butcher and smal supermarket with local produce.

The nearest winery where you can taste and buy the local wine at reduced prices is at walking distance.

About Sjoerd Zittema

Josje and Sjoerd; we were both professionals living in Rotterdam, when we decided to turn our lives around.

We chose Italy for its nice people, weather, food and wine.

Firstly we lived here with Josje's parents who died a few years ago. Since we rent their apartment and our guesthouse as well.

We are not in the renting business but we need the income for the upkeep of the house and we love to have people share our dream and wonderful house.

Sjoerd Zittema purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Sjoerd Zittema chose Ostra

When we decided to move from Rotterdam we found this house then derelict but with an astonishing view and a very nice garden. It is close to cities, beaches and mountains without being too much separate from people and neighbours.

What makes this apartment unique

What people love most of our place is its views, tranquility as well as the proximity to towns and beaches.

Our pool is mostly the center of the daytime spending whilst during the morning and the evenings the terraces of both apartments are very useful for dining and breakfasts.

Because the apartments used to be Josje's parents livingspace it does not have the features of a vacation house: it is far more a home.

This part of Le Marche is close to beaches as well as mountains, you can see both from your house.

Many Italians love to ride their bikes and can be rented close by at favourable rates.

The beaches range from velvet sand to rocks and the waterfront shows many charming small towns, all at relatively close range.

Particularly interesting are the caves called Grotte de Frasassi or the cathedral of Loreto.

In an area of 50 km you will find many medieval towns located on top of hills most are listed and have very nice restaurants as well.
